Localhost message

Can someone see if they can get to the following site?

www.elegantmarketplace.com

For the last 6 weeks or so I cannot. It seems to go there and then redirects to 127.0.0.1

No other users of the site are seeing this problem. I have checked my hosts file which is empty and I'm not using the plusnet filters. I've also tried using different DNS servers. Nothing works

I can access the site if I do so via a vpn, so I'm thinking maybe it's a plusnet issue?

Its very odd. Any ideas?

No issue accessing it from a PM connection for me.

127.0.0.1 is the local loop-back address pointing back to the PC itself.

This has a whiff of Malware of Browser Hijack IMHO

Can you run a Virus Scan and a scan using Malware Bytes Free edition?

Re: Localhost message

It happens on all devices. Pcs, tablets, phones. Anyone on my network cannot access that site.

Its very odd. I've also tried different routers.

I just cannot get to that site unless I change my ip via a vpn

Re: Localhost message

Working OK for me as well using a Plusnet connection, I do use Google DNS though.
I must have been really bad in a previous life. This is my 3rd ISP in a row that uses lithium.

No problem with access here on Google Chrome.

Re: Localhost message

No problem here, using FireFox and the default PN DNS.
